Very interesting display of different items from around the world. some of which were really hard to believe that it did happen but they were very well represented in the museum of Ripley's Believe it or not.

There is plenty to see and much of it is beyond imagination and some downright bizarre. There are some interactive things for adults and kids. I wondered if the albino giraffe was real or fake. Overall it was good but just pricey at $25.

The rest is a ripoff. Machines broken, money taken no product,we were sold tickets to closed venues. Thumbs down on ripleys, save your money for better things to do.

This adventure has been divided into to different museums. I like a little weird, odd and nerve racking all in one. We went into this museum thinking it was going to show the oddities from when I was younger. I found it to be a...More

_mdecoe, I'm not exactly sure what you mean by divided into different museums. We're still housed in 1 building and paying for the ticket gets you access to everything. As for your other point, we certainly appreciate the feedback!

We did the aquarium deal tickets where you get 2 other attractions and the aquarium for 45 bucks. This was a good attraction to visit while waiting for the rest of our party to arrive. Very interesting.
